Like its predecessors, Mario Party 10 is a board-game-style party game starring Mario and friends with over 70 mini-games in total. Unlike the previous games there is no real plot or story. The game offers three modes. In the Mario party mode up to four players race the game board and play different mini-games along the way.
Another mode is the Bowser party in witch one player plays as Bowser controlled through the Wii U GamePad. He has to steal the hearts of the other players (up to four) while they have to avoid this from happening in various mini-games.
The last mode, Amiibo party, can only be played with at least one Amiibo figurine and with up to four players. This mode has some own features like a Super Mushroom space where the Amiibo character can transform into a giant.
